From the San Diego Times we have a classic David and Goliath tale.
Five members of the Potrero planning group were voted off the panel Tuesday night in a recall election that served as a symbolic referendum on a controversial training camp proposed by Blackwater Worldwide.
The five incumbents all supported the proposed facility.
As the five were ousted, five candidates on an anti-Blackwater slate were voted in to replace the incumbents on the rural town’s planning group.
â€œIt should send a loud and clear message that Potrero does not want Blackwater in the community,â€ said Carl Meyer, a leader in the recall campaign and an anti-Blackwater candidate.
